Staff at mental health Hospital in Scunthorpe where one patient killed another say they were anxious about their own and patients ' safety, according to an independent investigation. Robert McNeill died after being attacked by fellow patient Jamie Reed at Great Oaks Hospital in 2017. Now, new report published by NHS England has said there had been fears over staffing numbers around the time of the attack, and the culture of safety in wards was also criticise. Officials at the Trust which runs the hospital say they welcome the report and have a robust action plan in place to carry out recommendations made in it. The report states that risks were not adequately controlled and caused staff to be anxious about their own and patients ' safety. It say: staff report that they do not feel safe, particularly on nights and in parts of Ward where they have raised concerns about staffing. Reed was convicted at Hull Crown Court of manslaughter by diminished responsibility and was sentenced in November 2017 to 12 years in custody. Mr McNeill, 60, was punch, choked and jabbed with a pen in an attack in his room at Great Oaks Hospital on January 16 2017. The latest report notes that if observations had been carried out differently, Reed would not have been able to go into Mr McNeill's room and remain undisturbed for 15 minutes. It said that Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Hospital on Ashby High Street, could not have predicted or prevented the assault but said actions could have been taken to result in better care and treatment for both men. The NHS report, which refers to Reed and Mr McNeill's As and O, conclude: tolerance of uncontrolled risk means that staff do not have resources or plans in place to manage risks effectively. We cannot say that Mr would not have subsequently killed someone, but we can say that promoting a culture that is less tolerant of risk will reduce the likelihood of patient harm in future. Several recommendations were made to improve care at Scunthorpe Hospital, including how serious incidents are handled and staff's knowledge of safeguarding. Dr Nav Ahluwalia, executive medical director for RDaSH, say: on behalf of the Trust, I want to again offer our sympathies and thoughts to the families of both patients. We appreciate this is a very difficult time for them. We welcome this independent investigation into an incident on one of our wards and we are very sorry that this incident happen. As the report states, trust could not predict or prevent events from taking place. However, we know that we could have offered a better standard of care and treatment and we apologise for not doing so. We have worked hard to increase the number of senior nurses in this Ward, as well as psychology and Occupational Therapy input.
